Since 1992, the Network has been providing high quality training and technical assistance to New Jersey-based community development organizations. We offer formal classroom training combined with individualized technical assistance. We convene member forums that include industry experts, local and national practitioners, funders, and state program administrators.

Staff provides on demand assistance in the areas of  housing, community planning, economic development and organizational development. All training and technical assistance is thoughtfully designed to help organizations strengthen their operations and better carry out their mission.

Featured TA & Training Program

The PSEG Foundation has partnered with Sesame Workshop to develop Let’s Get Ready: Planning Together for Emergencies, and Here For Each Other: Helping Families After Emergencies, free emergency preparedness and response initiatives in English and Spanish.

The initiatives are aimed at instituting emergency preparedness into families’ routines through simple tips, strategies, and activities, as well as prepare families with effective and comforting ways to respond when a disaster occurs. The APP and associated materials can be used in the home, as well as the classroom.
